    The Players:

    [and some whimsical bios]

    FRANK WINKELS believes in wringing every last effect out of the instrument he happens to be playing! Frank has been involved with music since the age of six. He is in demand as a clinician, recitalist, consultant, and teacher, and was selected as organist of the 1987 convention of the National Association of Pastoral Musicians held in Minneapolis. Employed by Immaculate Conception Parish in Columbia Heights as Minister of Liturgy and Music, Frank is an alumnus of Saint John's University, Collegeville, graudating in 1980 with a B.A. in liturgical music. He is a member and former chair of the Worship Board of the Archdiocese of Saint Paul and Minneapolis. He has performed concerts in New York, Philadelphia, and Omaha, among other places, and has been associated with the Allen Organ Company and Schmitt Music Company for many years. In 1986, Frank had a book of accompaniments to familiar hymns publish by Harold Flammer, and also a book entitled "The Ministry of the Sacristan" published by Liturgical Press. He is currently working on a book for children's choirs.

    [Frank Winkels died of AIDS in November 1995]

    JOHN SEBOLDT is currently working toward the Black Belt in Electronic Transcendance from the School of Hard Knocks. He grew up with a unique combination of technological and musical interests, playing his first service in seventh grade and tracing every wire he saw since age two. He spent several years in engineering, production, announcing, and programming work in the broadcast industry. In recent years, he has explored the use of synthesizers with the pipe organ, and has been organist/synthesist at Chrism Masses and choral festivals at the Cathedral of Saint Paul. As an organist, John's performances have been featured on the "Pipedreams" series from American Public Radio. As Director of Liturgical Music at Church of the Annunciation, Minneapolis, he leads three choirs and supervises the Annunciation Music Series. John serves the wider church as site coordinator for the Archdiocesan Children's Choir Camp at Annunciation and as a member of the Worship Board of the Archdiocese. A doctoral candidate at the University of Iowa, his organ teachers have included Delbert Disselhorst, Delores Bruch, and Gerhard Krapf. The radio taught him the rest. He will be a presenter/clinician at this year's Liturgical Music Workshop at Saint John's University, Collegeville.

    LARRY REYNOLDS was born in 1952 to a musically talented family and has lived and breathed music ever since. Piano studies began at an early age with his father, followed by advanced study under Marguerite Hoffman and Almyra Shipley Whitehead. While in high school he became interested in the organ, first studying with Robert Scoggin, then at the University of Michigan as an organ major under Robert Glasgow. Larry has held a number of church music posts, and has been organist/choirmaster at The Church of Gethsemane (Episcopal) in downtown Minneapolis since 1987.

    MAX THE MACINTOSH was assembled at the Apple Computer plant in Cupertino, California in 1988, and adopted by John in October of 1990. He is well on his way toward sentient status, but still tends to be overly fond of bugs.
